Girt (2013) by David Hunt is a humorous look at early Australian history as far as the early 19th century.

Apparently the book is pretty well researched. It’s also quite amusing. The jokes tend to be a bit heavy handed though. It’s full of interesting anecdotes and facts as well. So it’s easy, amusing reading that has a lot of information on just how corrupt, drunk and disorganised it all was.

It’s a fun read and would be well worth giving to high school students who think Australian history is dull.
